London: Supermodel Kate Moss has been diagnosed with a nerve disorder after experiencing paralysis in her right arm.

The 38-year-old catwalk queen was unable to move her limb last weekend at the Ritz hotel in Paris, France, reported a website.

"Kate was at the Ritz when she woke and had no feeling in her arm, which was terrifying. She saw the hotel's doctor and when she came back, she got a second opinion. She has told her friends she has ulnar nerve entrapment, a common disorder that can result in a temporary paralysis. Her hand is not paralysed or injured in any permanent way," a source said.

The news came as a blow to Moss, who has nine-year-old daughter Lila Grace with former boyfriend Jefferson Hack – as she and her rocker husband Jamie Hince are preparing to move into a new 7.25 million pounds home in Highgate, north London.

"Jamie will do most of the unpacking as Kate has been in a lot of pain. She was told the condition could take months to heal. She has told all her friends about her hospital drama," the source added.
